Notes

2019-08-31 [Digital Media] MEETING NOTES

----
Agenda Item 1 Notes
There haven't been any camera equipment classes in maybe 6 months and no one is stepping up to teach them.
We can't have required classes for tools that are not taught.
They effectively become private tools.
There is no one other than the Chair at the moment and he may delegate the power at will.

----
Agenda Item 2 Notes
House keeping no reason to have a separate almost carbon copy of the same rule for each specific camera model

----
Agenda Item 3 Notes
Life happens, sometimes things run overnight or with different sunsets, sunrises.

----
Agenda Item 4 Notes
House keeping no reason to have a separate almost carbon copy of the same rule for each specific camera model.
We have like a dozen things that shoot 4k resources shouldn't be an issue
